Cristina Bautista was 12 when her family left the east coast for Seattle. She swiftly made herself a presence fronting teenage pop bands like PAXIL ROSE before settling in as Visqueen’s bassist in 2009.
Gold Parts EP was recorded by Grammy nominated producer and arranger Phillip Peterson (Nada Surf, Brandi Carlile) and a luminous cast of Seattle guest musicians, Cristina Bautista has made the Gold Parts EP. A six-song tribute to growing strong instead of disappointed, Gold Parts reconciles the innocence and urgency of youth with the patience and pain of growing up.
